Births increase with the football craze…..!!!
There is no doubt that football is the most popular sport in the world. According to foreign data analysts, more than 50% of the world’s population definitely watch the FIFA World Cup.
However, the foreign media had brought a wonderful incident related to the football world championship back to the fore. It means that there is a relationship between the football world championship and the increase in births around the world.
In general, football is a game that is closely associated with alcohol as well as sadness and happiness.
Although drinking alcohol was banned in the Qatar tournament this year. The world’s leading alcohol companies had invested millions of dollars in the tournaments held every other year. The consumption of alcohol while watching the matches live or through various media and the sexual excitement that comes with thoughts of victory have led to an extraordinary increase in births after this season.
In 2006, after 9 months of the Fifa football tournament held in Germany, new births in Germany had increased by 10%. Germany’s average birth rate was less than 1% at the time. This situation identifies in many other countries as well. But Germany had done well.
In a study published by the Ulster Medical Society, which was carried out from 2006 to 2017. Birth rates for the following March ranged from 1,780 to 2,113 (7.3% to 9.2% as a proportion of total births for each corresponding year). Average birth rates for February and April combined ranged from 1,930 to 1,873 (7.2% to 8.1%)1McKenna, C. S., Znaczko, A., & Morrison, P. J. (2019). BIRTH RATE MAY INCREASE NINE MONTHS AFTER NATIONAL FOOTBALL SUCCESS. The Ulster medical journal, 88(1), 56–58.
This was quoted from The Guardian after nine months after Uefa World Cup in Germany.
Nine months after the Uefa World Cup it is German midwives who are having to be on the ball as the country celebrates an unprecedented baby boom, being attributed to the euphoria of last summer, when the team performed well and the nation basked in a successful tournament.
A survey by Die Zeit shows that in some parts the birthrate last month was up by almost 30% on the same period last year. The development is welcome in a country with one of Europe’s lowest birthrates at around 1.4 children per woman.The Guardian
However, Let’s see the progress after Qatar World Cup!
